In my work as a Registered Clinical Counsellor with offices in Sidney and Victoria I help individuals and couples restore pleasure and balance to their lives.
People come to see me because they want something to change. Often they have been trying to change on their own, sometimes for decades, and still feel unsatisfied. You are looking here because you desire change. Trying to figure out how to make the change we want to happen on our own often leads to frustration, disappointment, and settling for less than a fully satisfying life.
We may feel conflicted within ourselves, in our relationships, unsatisfied, empty at times, or anxious about situations. We may also be experiencing more severe symptoms related to traumatic stress from past abuse or traumas including auto crashes, surgeries, falls, or injuries.
As a counsellor I specialize in helping you to feel better physically, emotionally and function better cognitively.
I utilize a wide range of approaches to address pain, stress, depression and relationship issues. I have training in Somatic Experiencing Therapy, Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Emotion Focused and Transpersonal approaches. I have a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, Somatic Experiencing Practioner Certification and Touch Work for Psychotherapist's Certification. I also maintain a committed personal and professional development practice.
Our sense of well-being can be recovered, even after surviving extreme events, as long as we receive proper support and facilitation to complete those processes that were disrupted. I offer a holistic integrative therapeutic approach to guide people in their healing and growth. When you work with me you will learn to track body sensations, engage in mindful self-witnessing and become aware of the interplay between your cognitive, emotional and somatic levels of information processing.
My intention is to be attuned to your unique experience of life and work with your strengths at a pace that matches your capacity to process and integrate new experience and learning.
As a Registered Clinical Counsellor, a married partner for 27 years, and a father of two young men, I have experienced many of the struggles that we go through as partners and parents. I have learned much from my personal experience, professional training, and helping individuals and couples like you navigate life's challenges.
